Mercury in Scorpio: Disciplined, Fearless, Persevering

According to Vedic astrology and the Sidereal Zodiac (which is 23 degrees earlier than the Tropical Zodiac used by Western astrologers, from December 5th, 2019-December 25th, 2019 Mercury will transit the sign of Scorpio. 

For the Aries, Libra, and Aquarius rising signs Mercury becomes a functional malefic planet and can cause harm in their charts. The remedy for this is to:

  • Help children on Wednesdays
  • Don’t wear green
  • Don’t wear Emeralds
  • Listen to chants for Goddess Durga on Wednesdays

For the Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, and Pisces rising signs Mercury becomes a functional benefic planet and will not cause harm, but can become weak by transit or affliction. You can strengthen Mercury in your chart to protect against weakness by:

  • Wearing lots of green clothing
  • Using lots of green decorations in your home
  • Put green cellophane over a window in your home and let the green light in
  • You can buy green tinted sunglasses or a green tinted water pitcher and cups
  • Emerald is a safe and favorable gemstone for your chart

The remedies are easy and effective!

Mercury is weak in degrees until December 9th and then again from Decenber 22nd-December 29th. Be patient with stocks, business, technology, communications and intellectual property.
